COMMENTS

x and y are the distances from p to the nearest primes above and below p.

EXAMPLE

The distances from p=29 to two nearest primes are 6 and 2, and, because 2 divides 6, p=29 is in the sequence.

MATHEMATICA

divQ[n_]:=Module[{pr=n-NextPrime[n, -1], nx=NextPrime[n]-n}, Divisible[ pr, nx]||Divisible[nx, pr]]; Select[Prime[Range[2, 100]], divQ] (* Harvey P. Dale, May 22 2014 *)

PROG

(Python)

import sympy

prpr = 2

prev = 3

for i in range(5, 1000, 2):

    if sympy.isprime(i):

        x = i - prev

        y = prev - prpr

        if x%y==0 or y%x==0: print str(prev)+', ',

        prpr = prev

        prev = i
